might cost you cheaper to buy it locally. Even sea freight/customs rape/etc will buss your pocket.
Wheel wizard (Chaguanas) brings in special order wheels and they're relatively competitive in pricing.

If u ask MOST wheel shops, they will bring it in for you, was going to bring in wheels myself and realized its cheaper to buy here. Met a dealer and he asked me to just order from the same brand he brings in(check catalog) and he will bring em in for me np.

You could just teleport them, the technology exists just they keep it quiet.

I teleported some stuff recently, most stuff was fine but the chocolates ended up being re-merged/morphed with the cat food so I had to throw that away...but for the price I paid it was fine.

also be careful who you order from, I was sent 4 left side rims and had to send 2 back at my expense in order to get the right side ones, and appatently the right side ones are cheaper so is a kinda scam they do, they did sent a free pine air freshner though so that make up for it and i will buy from them again

Best method:

1. order stuff and ship to friend in US
2. have friend create new invoice for sale to you at reduce price. Indicate items are used/second hand/clearance/discontinued anything reason to indicate lower price
3. ship ocean freight to TT

What you will need:
1. a friend in the US

I do this all the time .... :D

hmm that barrel option sounds like a good idea.
ill compare the cost of all options and see which one best suited to my needs.

also haha about the wrong side of rims lmao.. does not compute.

When you go to collect the barrel,customs does make you empty it to a certain point to see what there is in the barrel.
